I haven’t talked to or heard from Gary Laplante in well over fourteen hours which has me worried. If you don’t know, Gary is a huge Wanderlei Silva fan and uses ‘Chute Box’ as an adjective. The guy can’t be doing too well right now.
The last time I talked to him, Urijah Faber was walking to the cage as Gary informed me that he ‘couldn’t stop crying or throwing up’. Now silence from Connecticut. I hope for his sake that he doesn’t read this quote from Dana White saying Wand might be done.
“People love him so much because of the way he fights and his style and the type of person he is,” White said. “But yeah, (it’s) probably the end of the road for Wanderlei.”
“People knew that [Silva] and Leben were going to come out and they were going to throw until somebody fell down, and it was Wanderlei tonight.”
“I think it’s one of those ones where I’d like to sit down and talk to him and kind of Chuck Liddell him into it. I think the guy has nothing left to prove.
“He’s a warrior. People love him all over the world, and I just don’t want to see that happen to him anymore.”
